Copy link

Nice, looks like this would support some common use cases. A few thoughts:

  • In get values(), loop through this instead of through keys. Otherwise you loop twice - once to get the copy and again to iterate over it.
  • Naming Nitpick, I probably would have gone _bindings, _registrations, maybe something else over _providers. Note: Providers was used a lot in a past project to mean something very different, which might be why I am avoiding it here.
  • Some duplication at the top of bind and top of resolve. Could the logic of checking for string and turning that into Class be moved out?
  • Is line 50-51 support for singletons?!
  • What if we actually want to specify what to use for the optional parameters?
  • Let me encourage you to kick up asunit (let's not bring flex into this?) when this goes "official" =p

Preemptive strike: I haven't had my morning coffee, so I hope the above made any bit of sense.
